Replaced the other side servo and receiver just to be sure, and reflew in a 20 minute clear window in between rain showers....and using the inspiration of the DRM markings and my knowledge of Hogans Heros, I practiced my fake german, at least some words are real.....:)

That's the second coolest radio-controlled model rocket glider I've ever seen!

After I built my Goblin themed R/C rocket glider, I decided to re-visit this one and do a similar design but tweaked for the slightly different fin shapes and color scheme, this one I used krylon short cuts and it dried very quickly with a little heat in the garage and seems good. Waiting on stickershock markings, but all up rtf it came in at just under 10 oz with about 2 grams nose weight only, I was able to optimize wing placement using what I learned on the goblin and the higher sweep of the wing/fin shape lead to a more reaward CP than the Goblin.

With that color scheme, how could it not be technically perfect, too? Great job, and as impressive a rocket glider as can be.

I let it stall vertical so it does sort of a flippy floppy thing before I recover level, you can watch the video and see if it went inverted, normally it's sort of a flop past vertical to slightly inverted with a snap to right side up sort of thing.


When it arched over and headed down did it go inverted?
